Dear Department for Education,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department for Education's handling of my FOI request 'Loans to academy trusts to stabilise their finances in financial year 2018/19'.

There is a precedent for releasing information about loans given to academy trusts in any financial year. The DfE has published details of such loans for financial years 2016/17 and 2017/18. There is, therefore, no reason why this information should not be released for financial year 2018/19.

I understand your response also covers your FOI response re grants to academy trusts in 2018/19. It would make sense, therefore, for you would consider both FOI responses in the internal review. I did not make this clear in my review request for your handling of the request to disclose grants.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/l...

Yours faithfully,

J Downs
